I was looking at dnd collectables and noticed that they all seem to be limited
to "9,995" worldwide.

A quick google search of "9,995 worldwide" shows similar number used for
collectables such as Harry Potter, Jurasic Park, Yu Gi Oh etc.

What's signicant about that number?

The only thing I can think of is often you'll see precious metals (platinum,
gold, silver) as ".9995 pure" and they've reused this number.

What do you mean, 9,995 worldwide? Can you give an example? Is it the
quantity?

I do a google search for: "9,995" worldwide and I get these sort of results.
It just seemed a strange number and was wondering why not 9,999.

If you search for 9,995, that is what you will find.

I didn't start out searching for 9,995, I noticed a lot of "limited edition"
stuff was limited to 9,995 and was trying to work out why spefically that
number and not (eg) 9,999 or a round number like 10,000.

Someone, somewhere picked 9,995 and there must be a reason.

My leading theory at the moment is it's to match the precious metal "0.9995
pure" that you see on silver etc.

Anyway, this now has nothing to do with dnd and gone off topic :)

More likely, the logic is this:

"We want this to be a 'limited' version in hopes of making it seem
more valuable to collectors. There's a company in China that will
mass-produce these, but you the count is limited to thousands of
units. So let's order 10,000 units. We'll need a handful for promotion
or archival; five should be enough, right?. Everything we don't keep
for ourselves, we sell. So that's 9995 on the market.

TL;DR: manufacturers aren't going to run 10,005 units, and since you
always need a few extra, that leaves slightly less to sell.

Makes sense, I hadn't thought of holding some for promo etc.

It's probably the same company in the backend somewhere making and
distributing all this stuff.
